Tip of the Week: Single Out the Subject

 

Flash can be a great tool to selectively add or subtract subjects in your frame. Well, not literally. For example, you can choose whether you want the entire crowd or a single person in the foreground to be perfectly exposed. By adjusting the power and mode of your flash to expose only one subject accurately, you can make a cluttered background seem less distracting. At the same time, you can bounce the flash off the ceiling or an adjacent wall to light up a vast area and get everything properly lit.
